I know for sure it can't play BF3 or Skyrim on good settings. Maybe low.
For the other games, it should play on med, minus Crysis 2.

Why do you say that? I see a lot of videos out there with BF3 & Skyrim gameplay with i3-2100 and my GPU...

Videos vary from person to person while benchmarks show the bigger picture. From the benchmarks, it isn't so good performing.

They are more GPU-intensive than CPU-, so it will be fine, but the i3-2120 performs better.

If I where to want to run Skyrim, or BF3, what kind of upgrade would I need to get? GPU or CPU?

GPU.

Okay amazing. I'm going to get the 2120, and find a better GPU for about the same (or at the most of $30 more.) Will you please help me with finding a GPU? Skype? :D

There I have to disagree. I just came from a 6770 and the performance in BF3 was horrific at 1080p. All the way Low on everything and it was still very jerky. It'll run, but will be distracting.

If I'm going to get the 6670, medium, or high. I'm THINKING about the 6770, though.

I could make it a notch lower, though. I don't think I could tell the difference. I get used to things.

Hmm... If you think that the 6670 is beter than the Gts 250, I'll get the 6670. If you think Gts 250 is better, though, I'll get that.

According to http://img.techpowerup.org/120107/chart.jpg the GTS 250 is faster, but uses more power.


I'll be getting the GTS, thank you for all your work! My friend has it, and he says he runs Skyrim on high graphics. Thank you again! :bounce:

Please post an update on here and let me know how it goes (or PM me). My primary reason I dropped the cash on a new system was that BF3 on a 6770 was so bad.

I was running on a 2.66GHz Core 2 Duo and 1066MHz RAM and that might have been killing it.
